Almost exactly a month from now the New England Museum Association (NEMA) will hold their annual conference. This is a fantastic opportunity for current and emerging museum professionals as well as museum students to participate in current conversations in the field, do some networking, and be a part of the largest gathering of New England museum professionals. While the early bird deadline has passed, there is still plenty of time to sign up – for one day or all three days!
This year’s conference theme is ‘Truth and Trust: Museums in a Polarized Society.’ With sessions such as Leading from all Levels: What You Can Do for Social Justice; Thinking about Science, Creativity, and Informal Learning: Conversations about Public Conflict over Decision-Relevant Science; Finding New Relevance in Legacy Collections; and many more, there are bound to be great and challenging conversations throughout the whole conference! And if that’s not enough, the evenings offer events to continue networking and relax in fun environments – such as a beach BBQ and exclusive visits to fascinating local museums.
